A Brand With
Deep Roots

Truth be told, our founding mister actually was a monsieur. Great-grand-père Bensadoun was a French cobbler, producing and repairing handmade shoes. His son, “Papi” Bensadoun learned his father’s trade and parlayed that skill into a network of shoe stores called Le Pied Mignon. With footwear in his blood, papi’s son,

Aldo Bensadoun, built on this heritage by bringing old-world expertise into the new world. Thus was born Mr. B’s Gentlemen’s Boutique for ALDO.


Handmaking Shoes
Gives Them Character

All told, our shoemaking process involves over 50 individual pieces, nearly all of them made by hand in Europe’s finest factories by craftspeople trained in Italy’s Brenta region. Handmaking shoes gives them character – subtle patterns in the stitching, or colouring in the upper, reflect the fact that a human has made them. The beauty is in the imperfection.

Our work is an exercise in marrying tradition with innovation. Whether it’s the timeless simplicity of a leather loafer or the hand-finished detailing of a brogue oxford wingtip, Mr. B’s uses old-world methods, top grade leather, and refined craftsmanship to build handsome, handcrafted modern shoes that are comfortable and robust.

Footwear Construction

ABOUT OUR LEATHER

Mr. B’s uses only European leather sourced from Italian tanneries in Tuscany and Veneto. Each piece is inspected to ensure that it is clear, supple and clean, consistent in color, and smooth. This quality leather will not only become softer with time, but if well cared for will also develop a rich patina.

Leather Outsole

A leather outsole has many advantages; one being that it is breathable and lightweight and thus, healthier for your foot. Another is that it looks great, and provides an elegance, feel and luxury that a rubber sole simply cannot.

Leather Lining/Insole

A leather lining and insole is the most natural, comfortable way to connect the foot to the shoe. We choose the finest soft grain calfskin lining, to keep your feet cool, dry and comfortable no matter what the circumstance.

Aluminium Shank

The shank is the backbone of any fine shoe. Located above the outsole, at the waist of the shoe and below the arch of the foot, an aluminum shank provides the kind of lightweight support necessary for long days on your feet.

Stacked Leather Heel

The heel will bear the brunt of everyday wear and tear. By building up layers of resilient leather stacked and shaped, the heel is not only given a beautiful hand finished quality, but re-heeling becomes a more simplified procedure.

A Dialect of Details


Here are the elements and processes that are used to build Mr.B's products.
Identify them through these symbols and their definitions.

Leather

Mr. B’s uses European leather sourced from Italian tanneries in Tuscany and Veneto. Each piece is inspected to ensure that it is clear, supple and clean, consistent in color, and smooth. This quality leather will not only become softer with time, but if well cared for will also develop a rich patina.

Vegetable-Tanned

Still the most traditional way to both strengthen the leather and to bring out its natural beauty and unique characteristics, vegetable-tanned leather is processed using natural tannins instead of harsh chemicals.

Milled Leather

The leather is put into a “dry drum,” with no chemicals and tumbled to soften the fibres within the skins. This gives it a “milled” effect, which is seen as patterns in the leather. It is strong, durable, soft and very flexible, while presenting a more robust and rugged look.

Drum-Dyed Leather

We soak our leather in a large drum to allow dye to penetrate all the way through the hide. Unlike pained shoes, drum-dyed leather is breathable, more comfortable, softer, more natural looking, and more forgiving, as any surface scratches will only reveal the dyed layers underneath.

Leather Outsole

A leather outsole has many advantages; one being that it is breathable and lightweight and thus, healthier for your foot. Another is that it looks great, and provides an elegance, feel and luxury that a rubber sole simply cannot.

Leather Lining/Insole

A leather lining and insole is the most natural, comfortable way to connect the foot to the shoe. We choose the finest soft grain calfskin lining, to keep your feet cool, dry and comfortable no matter what the circumstance.

Aluminium Shank

The shank is the backbone of any fine shoe. Located above the outsole, at the waist of the shoe and below the arch of the foot, an aluminum shank provides the kind of lightweight support necessary for long days on your feet.

Stacked Leather Heel

The heel will bear the brunt of everyday wear and tear. By building up layers of resilient leather stacked and shaped, the heel is not only given a beautiful hand finished quality, but re-heeling becomes a more simplified procedure.

Crepe Sole

The crepe sole is a natural shock absorber. The plant based latex rubber is coagulated, smoothed out and hung to dry. The crepe is then formed into blocks and cut into soles for a famously unique soft foot strike.

Welted Construction

The welting process, which involves cementing the sole to a welt – and on the upper itself – and then hand – stitching it, means that you can resole your Mr. B’s shoes, should you ever need to.

Stitched Construction

The rubber sole of every Mr. B’s athletic shoe is stitched to the leather upper, a traditional craftsman’s method for constructing a shoe that is long-lasting, sturdy and dependable.

Washed Leather Sole

Washing each leather sole prior to attaching them to the upper creates a uniquely rugged and rustic feel, all the while providing comfort and durability.
